Stanley Porter and Mark Boda here bring together a group of
internationally respected scholars to provide an up-to-date
assessment of New Testament translation in terms of textual
criticism, translation theory, and theology.
Each of the three sections includes theoretical essays on
the interface of a given area with particular issues in
translation, followed by applications of the theory to a
common passage the story of the rich man and Lazarus found
in Luke 16:19-31.
Advocates of different positions note the translational
implications that follow from choosing a particular textual
tradition or type over another. These differing perspectives
allow for both theoretical diversity and concrete
differences in the practice of translation.
Translating the New Testament concludes with an overall
assessment of the field of text criticism and translation
